Credit Suisse Group AG Securities Fraud Class Action:
The complaint alleges that Credit Suisse touted its prudent risk taking, while concealing material defects in the company's risk policies and oversight functions. These deficiencies allowed high-risk clients such as Greensill Capital and Archegos Capital to take on excessive leverage.
The truth began to emerge on Mar. 1, 2021, when Credit Suisse suspended a $10 billion family of funds that invested in debt arranged by Greensill. Greensill would later file for insolvency protection.
On Mar. 29, 2021 Credit Suisse announced Archegos defaulted on massive margin calls triggered by price declines in the securities underlying swaps. Then, on Mar. 30, 2021 the SEC summoned Credit Suisse and other banks involved in the Archegos affair. In addition, S&P Global Ratings downgraded the company's corporate debt to negative citing deficiencies in its risk management system.
All of this news has driven the price of Credit Suisse American Depositary Shares sharply lower.
After the class period, Credit Suisse announced it would write off $4.4 billion on its Archegos-related securities fire sales. The Wall Street Journal reported the company and its executives long ignored warnings before Greensill and Archegos imploded.
"We're focused on investors' losses and proving Credit Suisse intentionally put fees ahead of its so-called prudent risk management practices," said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
